A heroic book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Diet Delusion: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight Loss and Disease (Hardcover)
I read this book from cover to cover in one go. A staggering amount of work and research went into it, and it is a very comprehensive account of research, ideas and dogma related to health and obesity over the last century. It is a shame that many of the people involved did/do not have the same appreciation of what constitutes real science as Gary Taubes does. As a scientist myself I am horrified by the levels of arrogance, incompetence, dishonesty and fraud documented in this history.
It should be mandatory for every health profession to read it.
